    Women may shave their legs. It is permissible.
    Call onto Allah, such that you are certain that He, al-Mujib wal-Kareem, will answer your call before you even lower your hands.

    you are allowed to remove hair from any part of the body and face; Islam prohibits ONLY the plucking and shaping of eyebrows.
    everywhere else is allowed and there is no difference of opinion if anyone tried to tell you otherwise.
    The enforcement of Muslim Brotherhood is the greatest social ideal of Islam. On it was based the Prophet's (SAW) sermon on his last pilgrimage, and Islam cannot be completely realized until this ideal is achieved. '

    not only for that reason,but i think its just basic cleanliness to make sure one isn't hairy.

    If it is for basic cleanliness then can men do it too?

    Unmarried women can shave legs, hands, etc.
    Call onto Allah, such that you are certain that He, al-Mujib wal-Kareem, will answer your call before you even lower your hands.

    wasalam,

    women in the olden times used halawa..that was [wo]man made too..you know

    anyway, it's all cultural stuff @ don't shave, don't remove hair before marriage, etc.

    I think the elders kind of confused the "not allowed to shave" injunction for men and discourage them from shaving their beards off.... so instead they applied the principle to women
    You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

    shouldnt we remove 'unwanted hair' every 40 days?

    Sister its ok to remove leg hair by whatever means you feel suitable, shaving, epilation, depilatory cream, or waxing.

    If you have waxing done, bear in mind issues of awrah etc. If you are unsure send me a pm.

    If you have anymore question please message one of the regular sisters if mods and inshaallah we will help.

    For future reference, can some posters maintain hayaa when posting.
